I recently installed and uninstalled my network card drivers for testing (ungerman-bass drivers from win 98 CD) and now I get an error message at boot up. It is a window that says : Unable to load the dynamic link library msnp32.dll. The system cannot find the file specified. Some or all of the following feature is not available : Microsoft Network.

The msnp32.dll file IS in my windows/system folder. I currently only have dial up networking. How do I stop this error from occurring? Is the file in the wrong folder?

regsvr32 gave the error of 'Unable to load link at 0x000002', however the link to the Microsoft article helped because it suggested the Client for Microsoft Windows be removed then reinstalled, this fixed the problem. Thanks a ton.

PS, How on earth do you find info on the microsoft site? I find it to be a nightmare to navigate.
Cyber, thanks!

Besides searching on the web including MS site, I also maintain a database too that is catogorised with specific topics of FAQ in keeping all my research work.        ;p)     pslh
